Thanks for writing to us.

If your second pregnancy test is inconclusive and your periods are overdue then you need to get your blood sample checked for hcg levels. A rising titre of hcg after 48 hours of repeat sample will confirm the pregnancy.

Or you can wait for one 3-4 more days and repeat the pregnancy test with an early morning sample of urine.

Feeling bloated and frequent urination are non specific symptoms do not help in diagnosing the pregnancy.

Till then you need to use other methods of contraception.

If repeated pregnancy test comes negative then other causes like PCOD, hypothyroidism, anaemia, etc need to be ruled out with the help of your gynaecologist.

I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful.

Waiting for your further follow up queries if any.

Wishing you good health.
